After decades of suffering redlining and disinvestment by financial institutions, many communities have learned to fight back successfully. In more than seventy U.S. cities, over three hundred community-based organizations have negotiated at least $18 billion in reinvestment commitments in recent years. From Redlining to Reinvestment tells the stories of some of the most successful reinvestment campaigns in Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and California. In original essays, well-known community activists and activist academics identify the tactics and strategies that have proven effective and show how these efforts have been duplicated around the country.
